Wake at 3:30, about 30 minutes into the dozing in and out, with the t.v. on, I hear local news say "We're coming on early today because of the weather.". Hmmmm, back to sleep because, hallelujah, I am retired. Few hours later, I'm laying in bed with Hossa (dog) and read a post from my girlfriend, "I'm going to throat chop the next person that denies global warming." I'm thinking maybe I should get up, see what is actually.....BOOM, look at this, full blown snow storm. Planes sliding off the runway, traffic snarled, cold (26F) and nasty. My bird feeders are empty and dog wants out and ugh facing winter today wasn't in the plan. Throw on a hoodie, fill a bird feeder and throw out the stale bread.
I'm not actually complaining, but 10 years and 3 days ago, my 60th birthday was celebrated with sunny skies, my son and I went to pick up a keg....yes, I had a kegger, in shorts and t-shirts. We had the party in the yard with a firepit. Attire was at the most a hoodie. I think we are breaking records with this mess.
I suspect the dog will be more than on fire to walk in this stuff. O, how i wish i'd gotten some snow pants purchased by now.
Have a wonderful day, keep Sparkling!
